Mexican law firm Pérez Correa González has promoted Zulima González García to partner in the commercial bankruptcy and constitutional law practice.
Zulima has ample experience in the constitutional conflict and human rights cases in national and international tribunals, as well as in litigation, arbitration, bankruptcy and restructuring.
Her nomination as a partner at the firm strengthens its commitment to inclusion and gender equality, the Mexico City-based firm said in a statement.
“I am a firm believer in the role that women should have in our firm and I feel part of a solid firm that is committed to gender equality,” Zulima said.
“This news comes as a strengthening of our commitment and as our way of facing the wave of strategic changes that the firm is undertaking,” she added.
“Zulima has an outstanding career within the industry and has been recognized as a ‘rising star’ by Legal 500 in the bankruptcy and restructuring practice,” the firm said.
In 2020 she was named as regional director for Mexico of the Latin American chapter of the International Women's Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation (IWIRC).
Zulima has participated in some of the largest mercantile bidding processes in Mexico in recent years, attending to the needs of the firm’s clients and acting as an advisor on a regular basis.
Pérez Correa González was founded in December 2020 as a result of changes to the structure of law firm SOLCARGO, which ceased operations and split into three firms, with partners Fernando Pérez Correa and Luis González launching Pérez Correa González.
Zulima had joined SOLCARGO as a junior associate in 2015 and became an associate in 2019 before becoming part of the newly launched firm Pérez Correa González. The firm’s other partners are José Covarrubias, Fernando Erraña, Omar Aguilar and Jorge Labastida.
The other two firms that launched from SOLCARGO’s dissolution are Solórzano Linaldi and Carvajal Machado.
